Cafe du Monde Opens in City Park

Cafe du Monde is known for their beignets and is a historic fixture in the city of New Orleans. For the past 6 months the cafe and beignet parlor has been serving out of their food truck in City Park. This week, the new location will open July 31, 2019 with a ribbon cutting ceremony set for 10:30 a.m.

The new location will be in the renovated Casino Building at City Park. Timken Center, the Casiono Building, opened its doors in 1913 serving refreshments and housing park offices.

Cafe du Monde revamped the Spanish Mission Revival-style building by replacing the plumbing, kitchen floors and wiring, installing a new grease trap and building new restrooms. The renovations to the old building took longer than expected for the cafe.

“We could do it quick or do it right, and we agreed to do it right,” said Jay Roman, one of the family owners of Cafe du Monde said. “You don’t get many chances like this, before it’s opened, to get in there and do that kind of work.”

The new cafe used design touches from the original Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter which include the striped awnings and a neon sign. Although there are many new additions, Cafe du Monde kept the historic ambiance of the building. The new cafe still has the old tile floors, spacious outdoor seating, and arched windows.

Cafe du Monde in City Park will be open daily, 6 a.m. to midnight and to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
